I have a confession to make: I don’t look or feel my best right now. Part of it stems from being burned out from working a full-time job and simultaneously writing a book. Part of it is because my gym has been closed since March, and I haven’t had a decent workout since. And part…

I was at a barre class recently and saw a good friend of mine. After suffering through an hour of deceptively simple but excruciatingly painful ballet moves, we stopped in the lobby to talk. As we chatted about how hard the class was, she said, “Yes, but I’m here so I can eat later.” I…

We women are so hard on ourselves. We lose our patience with our kids and call ourselves bad moms, we have a down day and say we’re depressed, we blow it on a diet and call ourselves failures. We assign ourselves all kinds of negative personality traits that, sadly, eventually become identities. But what if…

Hi there! I’m so happy to see you well-rested, totally refreshed, and ready to take on the day! Ok, maybe you’re not. If you’re anything like I used to be, it’s more likely you didn’t sleep that great, you had to make coffee this morning that could double as rocket fuel, and you’re already dreaming…

I see it all the time — with my clients, my girlfriends, my coworkers, and my family members. And I definitely used to see it in myself. Feeling desperate to lose weight, determined to lose it by any means necessary, and preparing for a week-long carb-cutting, calorie-restricting, food-avoiding ordeal . . . that ultimately ends…

I went to an Asian restaurant a few weeks ago with a good friend, and we had the most amazing spring rolls. They were filled with carrots and cucumbers and had tons of basil and cilantro. They were delicious. I thought to myself, “These are so healthy and probably so easy to make . .…

I have a saying that runs through my head every single morning, as soon as my alarm goes off. And I’ve said it so often and for so long now, that it automatically pops into my head the minute I open my eyes. Here it is: Get up, show up, do the work. These three…

I adore juicing. It gives me clear, glowing skin, my hair looks shinier, and it makes me feel like I took a mild tranquilizer (in a good way). But the reason I started juicing was for none of those reasons. I started juicing so I could lose weight. I bought a book by Jason Vale…
